New Allen Classic 10 single-ended Class A amplifier. 10 watts of grab n' go fun with a 10" speaker. Straight up VOLUME and TONE controls keep it simple plus a unique BOOST switch to punch up the mids and highs for a more Marshall-like tone.

An Eminence Copperhead speaker in a generous sized 17" by 17" cabinet make this the ultimate practice/recording/small gig amp. This beautiful little 10W, 25lb, $799 hand-wired tube amp is easy on the eyes, the ears, the back and the wallet!
